The purposes of the Almighty are perfect, and must prevail, though we erring mortals may fail to accurately perceive them in advance.

Meanwhile we must work earnestly in the best lights He gives us, trusting that so working still conduces to the great ends He ordains. Surely He intends some great good to follow this mighty convulsion, which no mortal could make, and no mortal could stay. Abraham Lincoln
